A Star Is Born's deeper message explained: Don't be 'Shallow'

What makes a star? Is it the ability to impress drag queens with painted-on eyebrows and a rendition of “La Vie En Rose”? Is it one’s twerking ability or sex appeal? Is it that certain je ne sais quoi factor? Or is it a singer’s ability to traverse those emotionally raw places and return with something genuine to say?

As we approach the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, Entertainment Weekly partnered with The Take to bring you a series of videos diving into the awards contenders, starting with A Star Is Born, which has a hot take on that central question posed earlier.

The characters may change, but the story remains. This time, as Bradley Cooper directs himself and Lady Gaga in the latest remake of A Star Is Born, Gaga portrays Ally, an aspiring singer-songwriter getting by as a waitress. One night, as she performs “La Vie En Rose” at a local drag queen bar, she finds famous country star Jackson Maine (Cooper) sitting in her audience. The moment compels Jackson to learn more about Ally and eventually put her on stage.

AND MOSTLY YOU SHOULD WATCH THE VIDEO:

wow that video truly captured the greatness/depth of the film.

The part where the narrator talks about how the white lights during 'I'll never love again' symbolise when ally is no longer hiding behind jackson's sound or her own popstar persona; she basically dives to the deepest part and becomes her most authentic-self hence a star is born.

Matty Libatique (cinematographer) is truly a cinematic genius and deserves more credit!

I really loved this, and it also kinda made me understand Gaga a bit better in the sense of her 'pop persona' verses 'stefani' and why Joanne really is her best record. (I know that's a little off topic but it correlates)

2012ga is my aesthetic

I figured having the song Shallow featured 3 times  in the movie kinda explains it :trollga:
